Community Review for Gamestar Mechanic
I think that this is a beautifully rendered and thought out piece of software. I love that my students like it and WANT to use it. I also love that it helps them with critical thinking skills and it helps them adjust their thinking about other types of Coding.
How I Use It
I spend my days teaching coding with SCRATCH - this product is a great "adjunct" tool to leave for subs when I am absent. It is self-paced and self-monitoring. The kids love the idea of winning levels, and learning to build a game at the same time. I wouldn't use it to "teach" coding" per se, but it is an excellent "side" to have available for those "what do I do when I'm done" moments.
